Geranium pratense Black Beauty™

Meadow Cranesbill

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.230.210

(='Nodbeauty') Developed in England, this selection holds its amazing purple foliage colour during the summer and is said to be superior to other dark-leaved forms. Clusters of denim-blue flowers appear above the mound of deeply cut black-purple leaves in early summer. Trim back in summer if the foliage becomes floppy or untidy. Another amazing introduction from Nori and Sandra Pope of Hadspen House Nursery. USPP pending: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
